Background:

The Bliznetsy ("Twins") lava flows occupy a low-lying area east of the Sredinny Range and north of the Eastern Volcanic Zone volcanoes. The young flows lie south of the Ozernaya River about 80 km north of historically active Shiveluch volcano. Effusion of about 0.5 cu km of lava forming the Bliznetsy flows about 3000 years ago was preceded by weak phreatomagmatic eruptions. The unusual location of this recently studied young volcanic vent lies north of the margin of the subducting Pacific Plate.
